the timing behind the revelation. house majority leader eric cantor said an fbi employee told him in october about the petraeus affair. by that time an fbi investigation was already under way. the fbi told the director of national intelligence james clapper on election night, according to a senior u.s. intelligence official. the white house says it was notified the day after the election, and the president the following day. that doesn't make sense to house homeland security chairman peter king. >> this seems to have been going on for several months yet now it appears they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. >> "the new york times" reports the fbi actually started its investigation late this summer. the house and senate intelligence committees were also caught by surprise. >> are you going to investigate why the fbi didn't notify you before? >> yes, absolutely. i mean, this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. >> the fbi was investigating harassing e-

-mails to an fbi agent friend, and that ended up triggering an investigation. those e-mails eventually turned out to be sent by paula broadwell. that would be david petraeus' biographer. and eventually turned out his mistress, as well. we mentioned it was a web, didn't i? and it is. the affair exposed general petraeus and he was forced to resign as the cia director. well, now the general john allen, who is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, is being investigated for trading alleged quote flirtatious e-mails with ms. kelley over the last couple of years. we're hearing from ms. kelley for the first time in a 911 call to t don't know if by any chance, because i'm an honorary consul general, so i have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well. but now it's against the law to cross my property since this is now like, you know, it's inviolable. >> all right. no problem. i'll let the officers know. >> thank you. >> meantime, the senate intelligence committee wants to be briefed both by petraeus and his repla
motivated to investigate those e-mails. something like that should not and would not rise to an fbi probe? >> it's a great question, and what we found out was the way he was being described was really inaccurate. people had initially reported and republican leaders had described him as a whistleblower who came forward, complaining to cantor, house majority leader cantor's office because he was worried the fbi investigation that uncovered an affair by the cia director david petraeus was stalled for political reasons. it was implied he was concerned about the progress of this case and worried about it being shelved improperly. what we found in our reporting is sources very close to humphries and aware of his account, briefed on his information, tell us quite a different story about the agent. he's a tampa agent who had a long-standing sort of social acquaintance with jill kelley, the woman in tampa. he basically forwarded some information to his tampa fbi colleagues about harassing e-mails that were more interesting than everyday harassing e-mails because they mentioned a four-star general.

the election that his c.i.a. director was being investigated by the f.b.i. you have spoken with intelligence officials. >> look. >> can that be true? >> i spoke to a former c.i.a. director last week about this. i said how long would it have taken if your name came up while you were director, how long would it take the president to findhe said probably two or thre days, maybe a day if he was out of the country but he would have been notified instantly. >> that is the duty of whom? >> the justice department to notify the president. >> shepard: z what happens now? >> this is not like watergate by the fact you have four dead americans at a critical time not only in history but in the time of trying to settle the middle east. the facts are we had intelligence indicating there was a threat and failed to act. the day of total chaos then afterwards, to changed the points? this is not a girl scout cookie order form, this is national intelligence. i can't believe no one knows who changed the points. >> all this -- moved on to the next office and stamped. your insight is second to none, lieutenant colo
